@03:22This is cool.

So...

At this point in time reproduction is controlled, and at this part they're imagining that they are free to love?... am i right?

In a time where all is designed to be controlled, the elementary force of our very existence brings an undeniable fusion for a magic moment. This short film is simply about the power that brings us all to life.

Daily Deviation

Given 2007-10-02
Swim by *silvanderwoerd "In a time where all is designed to be controlled, the elementary force of our very existence brings an undeniable fusion for a magic moment. This short film is simply about the power that brings us all to life." This excerpt taken directly from the artist's notes. If you'd like to be visually and mentally blown away, have a look at "Swim." This marks the first Daily Deviation ever given in the Film Gallery and it's an honor to feature this piece.

@04:15I like how you did the reproduction process in a blue glow giving the viewer the feel of the deep sea. I got a feeling you were trying to portray genetic alteration but I became very confused when everything became floating in a blue glow. Was it showing the relationship of the two people that they wished they had or...? I'm not sure, but still its a wonderful piece.

@04:19there was something quite harrowing about the struggle that is faced in order to create a life, then the piece seems to address the taboo in certain cultures with artificial inemination (i personally dont have a problem with it), but also adresses the magic and beauty of what, taboo or not, has been created....
awe inspiring^_^

@03:50wow, yeah, symbolism down to the detail. the guy is unable to fertilize the woman, so his legs are crossed, plus, his job is done, he's already donated the sperm. the woman on the other hand, is open, to receive the egg and nurture it for 9 months. her connection with the zygote's further intensified through the scene w/ her zoomed up iris.. chilling. i love it.
